That car is the owner's car. That was probably bought from the money he got from AMSC when his patents were bought out by them 6-8 years ago. Same money he used to get the new business started. And who are you to judge the credibility of a business by the cars of employees. You take some psch courses with your mba?
He could have inherited the car, but that is no reflection on his ability as an engineer or business man.
How's it going Jeffrey? Making some nice sales over there at Tier?
Onto something else. I don't think Jeff ever said anything about your ability as a business man or your skill sets were impacted by the car he (you) drive. I think what Jeff is alluding to is that the car you drive and the fact you park it out front while all your employees park on the side with modest vehicles are a cultural difference between TIER and ZBB and could have some conflict down the road. I can see his point, but overall I see yours and others (and my own) that the car is completely irrelevant ~~ now parking it out front as if to say 'I'm better than the rest of the folk that work here' I don't care for. Maybe closest spot, but not up front.
